    Service is awful: they forgot one aperitive and it took more than 10 minutes to bring it ..., food Was barely warm in the plate, fries came very late , etc. Personnel not at the level of the potentially good food

    I took the croquette aux crevettes and thought the crust was a bit too think but my husband liked it so it’s very subjective. As for the main, both our dishes were delicious. Service was very nice. Too bad we couldn’t leave a tip paying by card...

    We‘ve had a very pleasant new years eve dinner at the 1040. The food was very good at all, but the service was excellent. My wife is pregnant and each one of the service staff knew about it and they served only well done food and recommended very tasty non-alcoholic drinks especially for her.

    Really nice space and food. Would recommend! Waiters were friendly and the menu was also fitting and with a decent variety. Even though it is part of the Sotifel hotel you feel cozy and welcome.

    Wonderful experience. Service warm and professional, cousine light but extremely tasty. Cocktails really good. Location modern and warm. One of the best place in town, by far. Quality / price ratio: wonderful. Continue like this, success will come.

    Sadly after a truly excellent experience at the bar, the meal was disappointing. Everything was pretty good until the waffle at dessert which one would expect to be excellent in Belgium / Brussels. It was ice cold and greasy. The waiter replaced it with one that was also cold and greasy and when I asked for a fresh one, he replied that it was cooked “only yesterday” which is shocking to me. So sad for an otherwise nice and competent service and meal.

    If you like to find back product quality enhanced by the recipe itself, it's tthe place to go.

    Setting is really nice, with kind staff. PIty our dessert was forgotten, so after almost hal and hour we had to ask for it. The overall experience is not negative at all, I would only suggest a better tempo during the meal between the plates e.g.: do not take away the plates immediatly after we've had the last bite of it (seems to rush us out), and remember to bring the dessert :-)

    The welcome and staff were nice. Restaurant is spacious so good to discuss privately. Pity too much light and no table cloth in the evening. The revisited food was a disaster. Poor presentation and chicken not soft in my vol au vent. Boring taste. Please keep the original !

    Fantastic restaurant for a fancy and calm night out. Quality of the food is very high, the service impeccable, the whole staff makes you feel comfortable and welcomed. The dishes were very well prepared, beautiful to see and tastes well put together. Service is a bit slow, but I think it's part of the experience and makes you savour the dinner even better.

    For our first stay in Brussels we were able to discover the Sofitel Brussels Europe restaurant: Magic! Fantastic welcome, personalized and with a festive tasting menu. All Belgian flavours with a food and wine combination. A nice surprise, a big thank you to all the team
